Evidently I never made an introduction on here!

My name is Shooshy, I'm an admin on both tech.lgbt and puppy.cafe

I'm a queer jackalope, pronouns they/them or fae/faer. Currently a history student and barista on an organizing committee.

I have a lot of interests and also a lot of mental illness, so feel free to reach out at any time but don't take it personally if I take a while to get back to you. It's not you, it's me, for real.

Anyway! Glad to meet you all.

Time to make a thread about some thoughts on Mastodon and on the costs of running your own server, plus a funding ask 🧵 :boosts_ok_gay:

Too bad it was well after Hanukkah when I actually got those window clings up :blobfoxlaughsweat:

#1 long term fediverse tip. turn off automatic following and make it so you approve followers manually. Be as arbitrary as you feel like with who you decide to approve or disapprove of following. only let folks have access to you and your followers only posting that you want to have access.

you don't need a specific reason to not approve a follow. Someone's energy doesn't feel right sure go ahead. No pronouns in bio, sure. whatever reason you want is valid because no one is owed access to you.
